Juror #11: A refugee from Europe, Juror #11 speaks with an accent and is ashamed, humble, almost subservient to the people around him, played by Joe Vincent.
Juror #12: A slick, bright advertising man who thinks of human beings in terms of percentages, graphs and polls, played by Christopher R. Ellis.
On a sweltering August night in New York City, the jury files into the deliberation room. The door is locked behind them. Now twelve nameless men from twelve varied backgrounds must decide the fate of a young man accused of killing his father. Faced with playing the executioner, these dozen men must first face themselves, their biases, and their own sense of justice. This American classic will have you on the edge of your seat until the final verdict is announced.
